President Gibson Announces Retirement' 
July 1, At End of College Year, 1960-61 


Miss Susan Benedict was pre- 
sented as Miss Crulf Park, Thurs- 
day, January 12. This is the highest 
honor that a Gulf Park Senior can 
receive. She is selected by the stu- 
dents and must possess those quali- 
ties most nearly true of a Gulf 
Park girl. 

Susan was gowned in a pale 
pink, floor length gown of peau 
de sole designed with a draped 
bodice featuring a rose of self ma- 
terial and tiny spaghetti straps. The 
softly belled skirt was banded at 
the hemline with an edging of pale 
pink stiffened sheer material. For- 
mal-length white kid gloves com- 
pleted her attire. She carried an 
arm bouquet of American Beauty 
red roses. 

Before attending Gulf Park, 
Susan attended Lake Odessa High 
School in Lake Odessa, Michigan, 
where she was a member of the 
Trojan staff, annual staff, the Glee 
Club, band, and served as treasurer 
of the Student Council her Senior 

At Gulf Park, Susan is Editor-in- 
Chief of the Tammy Hoiii, Chap- 
lain for Sigma Psi Iota sorority, is 
a member of Jet Maskers and the 
Y.W.C.A., and has a radio pro- 
gram over WGCM in Gulfport. 

Susan's future plans are to enter 
a university and major in radio and 
television with a minor in jour- 

President Joseph E. Gibson of 
Gulf Park College announced re- 
cently his intention to retire on 
July I, at the end of the current 

Mr. (jibson came to (lulf Park 
in 1958 from Tulane University, 
where he had served for twenty 
years as Professor of Educational Ad- 
ministration and in several admin- 
istrative capacities. He is a native 
of West Point; is a graduate of Ole 
Miss; and has his Master's Degree 
from Columbia University. Before 
going to Tulane in 1936, he was 
Superintendent of Schools at Mc- 
Comb, Mississippi. On leave from 
the University, he served five years 
(1941-46) as Director of Higher 
Education for Louisiana. 

Mr. Ciibson states that, after the 
first of July, he will have time to 
continue and have a larger part in 
the work of the Associated Consult- 
ants in Education, Inc., a private 
enterprise corporation, of which he 
is part-owner. 

In commenting on Mr. Gibson's 
retirement, Mr. Harold Barber. 
Chairman of the Gulf Park Board 
of Trustees said: "The Board of 
Trustees is grateful to Mr. Gibson 
for the efficient service which he 
has rendered to Gulf Park College. 
We shall find it difficult to re- 
place him with a man who knows 
the whole field of education, es- 
pecially in the South, as well as 
Mr. Gibson. 

He leaves Gulf Park with our 
friendliest regard and best wishes. 
During their years on the Coast, 

Mr. and Mrs. (Jibson have both 
made valuable contributions to the 
social and civic life of the area." 

Mr. Gibson's letter announcing 
his retirement is as follows: 
Mr. Harold Barber, President 

Board of Trustees 
Gulf Park College 
Gulfport. Mississippi 

Dear Mr. Barber: 

At the end of the year, I shall 
have completed the three-year con- 
tract between your Board and my- 
self. At our last meeting, we dis- 
cussed, and the Board approved, 
my request that I be allowed to re- 
tire on July I as President of Gulf 
Park College, since I shall have 
reached the retirement age.

President Gibson 

(Continued from Page 1 > 

In announcing my retirement 
from this position, there are some 
things that I should Hke to say: 

First, let mc thank the Board 
for its support, cooperation, and 
cordial good will. It is made up 
of leading citizens of the Coast who 
are wholly devoted to Gulf Park 

Second, I want to express my 
sincere gratitude to the members 
of the faculty and the staff of the 
College for their dedicated services. 
We have worked together in com- 
plete understanding. The work of 
every member of the faculty and 
staff has seemed to me to be tre- 
mendously important and has been 
deeply' appreciated. Nor, would I 
overlook the men in our excellent 
maintenance department and the 
other loyal wage employees of the 

Third, I express sincere regarcf 
and concern for the students — the 
several hundred girls who are, 
after all, the ultimate reason for the 
College to exist. It has been a priv- 
ilege to have the over-all direction 
of the continuing education of these 
fine young women at the junior col- 
lege level who are in such an im- 
portant period of their li\es. 

Finally, it has been, and is, a 
pleasure to Mrs. Gibson and me to 
live here and have the friendship 
of so many leading people of the 
Gulf Coast. 

After retirement from Gulf Park, 
I shall have time to continue and 
have a larger part in the work of 
the Associated Consultants in Edu- 
cation, Inc., a private enterprise 
corporation of which I am a part- 

We still have one semester to go 
in the 1960-61 academic year. I 
will, of course, continue to devote 
my best energies to the office of 
President of the College. More- 
over, I will assist and facilitate in 
every professional way the transi- 
tion from my administration to 
that of my successor, whoever he 
may be. 

, Sincerely yours, 
Joseph E. Gibson

Christmas Banquet Is 
Colorful Holiday Fete 

The annual Christmas Banquet 
was the perfect beginning for the 
holiday season. Decorations were 
presented in a magnificent array 
of colors that transformed the 
dining room into a picture of holi- 
day spirit. In the back of the dining 
room was a very large and beau- 
tiful Christmas tree that glistened 
from top to bottom. For center- 
pieces, miniature Christmas trees 
were placed on mirrors that added 
twice as much spirit to the gala 
event. The buffet was adorned with 
large magnolia leaves that were 
frosted, with red candles scattered 
among them. 

Entertainers for the banquet were 
the Carolers who sang throughout 
the meal, filling the air with their 
Christmas music. 

The banquet ended with the 
presentation of the gifts to the wait- 
ers, waitresses, kitchen help, and 
maintenance men. President Gibson 
delivered both a brief speech and 
gifts to the helpers. The amount 
of each gift depended on the length 
of time each helper had been with 
the college. 

80 See "The Music Man" 
Musical At New Orleans 

On January 17, approximately 
eighty girls saw The Music Man 
at the Civic Theatre in New Or- 

Forrest Tucker played in the title 
role of "The Music Man." Along 
with Mr. Tucker, Joan Weldon, 
Cliff Hall, and Benny Baker were 
the foremost supporting cast. 

This play was staged entirely by 
Morton Da Costa, who made this 
one of America's happiest musicals. 
The girls who saw it especially 
liked "Seventy Six Trombones" and 
" "Til There Was You." The play 
was set in the early part of the 
twentieth century. 

The girls went on chartered buses 
to the theatre. They all returned 
praising this thoroughly delightful 
musical comedy. 

Practical Arts Club Has 
Delayed New Year's Fete 

Miss Ramsey and Miss Thrasher 
along with all of their students had 
a wonderful time at their New 
Year's Party. 

The home economics rooms were 
gaily decorated for the New Year's 
Season with hats, horns, streamers, 
and balloons. 

Table after table offered such 
foods as cookies, fruit cakes, candies, 
sandwiches, and coffee. 

The refreshments were served 
buffet style in the kitchen and de- 
corated tables were set up in the 
classrooms and hall where the guests 
ate. The decorations were given as 

Glee Club Presents 
Xmas Choral Program 

The Glee Club ot Gulf Park 
College presented a choral program 
entitled The Story of Christmas. 
It was held in the Auditorium on 
Friday, December i6, i960 at 5:00 
p.m. The Glee Club, under the di- 
rection of Mrs. Estelle Archer, sang 
eleven numbers, and were accom- 
panied by Mr. Roger W. Daniels 
on the piano. They were dressed 
in white pleated skirts and white 
choir robes with large red organdy 
bows at the neck to lend to the 
Christmas spirit. 

The program began with a Span- 
ish Song entitled On A Morning 
Long Ago, followed by Carol Of 
The Russian Children. The Glee 
Club featured guest baritone, Lloyd 
Burland, who sang with Bobbie 
Andis, Soprano, the leading parts 
in a selection entitled The Little 
Town. Betty Bradley, soprano, also 
took a leading part in the next 
number What Strangers Are These? 
A 1 6th century German number, 
Lo, How A Rose E'Er Blooming 
was followed by Lullay, My Jesu, 
and Sing Gloria. 

"Sanctus" from the St. Cecelia 
Mass was the main number of the 
program, which was beautifully 
performed by the entire Glee Club, 
and the audience was spell-bound. 
Cheryl Willis, soprano, sang the 
well known / Wonder As I Wander 
with the Glee Club as her accom- 

Suddenly we were taken from 
a solemn atmosphere to one of joy 
and gayiety. The last three num- 
bers— Cffro/ Of The Bells, On This 
Good Christmas Morn, and the 
light and ever-popular Sleigh Ride — 
ended another beautifully performed 
Christmas program. 

Everyone, full of the spirit of 
the season, left the Auditorium for 
the dining room which was the 
scene of a joyous Christmas banquet 
for students, faculty, administra- 
tion, and guests.

Joseph E. Gibson. 

Council Entertains At 
Annual Tea, Reception 

The holiday spirit was in the air 
when the Student Council of Gulf 
Park College gave its annual tea 
for the faculty and administration, 
Monday, December 5th. Bonnie Jo

Modeling Mrs. O'Neal's collection of 1920 dresses was this 
winsome quartet of "belles" from the past. 

"Then and Now" Is Theme Fo 
Annual January Spring Fashion 

Theme for the style revue was 
Then and Now with the stage 
setting depicting a costume of tht 
2o's and one of the 1961 season. 
As each group of styles was pre- 
sented, a student wearing its coun- 
terpart from Mrs. O'Neal's collec- 
tion of 1920 dresses, appeared on 
the stage to set the pace for the 
present styles. 

Taking the cue from the Then 
and Now theme, the Gulf Park 
College Ensemble, under the direc- 
tion of Mrs. Estelle Archer, en- 
tertained at intermission with a 
group of 1920 songs. The girls, 
dressed in clothes of that era, took 
on the mannerisms and fads of the 
flapper period, much to the delight 
of the audience which expressed its 
approval by laughter, applause and 

Music for the show was by a 
trio from the New Orleans Phil- 
harmonic: Russel Bobrowski, vio- 

r Colorful 

linist; Hal Runyan, cellist; and 
Jack Yates, pianist. 

Using the new color, sunset 
orange, the stage setting featured 
a large spool of orange thread with 
needle, brass loops holding draped 
sewing material in this same color, 
and white wicker containers of 
flowers in this same shade. 

Play clothes, suits, street clothes, 
cocktail and after five ensembles 
and formals were modeled for the 
Coast stores of Crown Colony, 
Northrop's, Shamis', Bittar's, Ellis 
Salloum's, J. C. Penney Co., M. 
Salloum's, Brumfield's, Van Pelt's, 
Christian's House of Fashion, 
Stacey's, Ideal Woman's Shop, Elite 
Shoppe, Austin's, and Rosenblum's. 
Styles were shown from Kreeger's, 
Holmes, Goldring's, Gus Mayer's, 
and Maison Blanche, all of New 

Vibrant colors, combined with 
vibrant but contrasting colors, such 

as shocking pink with sunset orange, 
pale pink with red, blue with green, 
orange with yellow, pink, red and 
green, seemed the dominant trend 
for the 1961 clothes. 

Blacks, dark blues, browns and 
beiges also featured contrasting 
blouses or accessories to highlight 
the always popular basic colors for 
all-occasion costumes. Blacks were 
combined with browns and beiges, 
or with bright prints. 

Materials ran the gamut from the 
"one hundred per cent silk", with 
the in-between-materials combining 
cotton, silk, linen and the new 
synthetic materials for drip dry 

Materials were rich and luxurious, 
even for play and leisure clothes, 
and brought back the elegance of 
the mi-lady look at the 1890 period 
rather than the 1920. 

Day-time dresses were short, most 
of them coming to mid-knee. Cock- 
tail and late wear dresses were 
short to mid-calf, while evening 
gowns went all formal with floor- 
length belled or bouffant skirts. 

Accessories were also much in the 
fashion picture, with the many 
strand necklaces and bracelets used 
to pick up or contrast the colors of 
the costume being worn. Silk scarfs, 
chiffon and straw hats, pearlized 
calf bags and shoes and multi-color- 
ed cloth bags and shoes and kid 
gloves proved the most popular ad- 
ditions to complete the attire.

Jet Maskers December 
Presentation Pleases 

The Imaginary Invalid, a play 
by Moliere, was presented by the 
Jet Maskers December 8 and 9 in 
the Auditorium. 

The cast included the following: 
Sam S t a 1 1 o n, Sali Burch, May 
Frances I'Anson, Stephanie Pitts, 
James Lynes, Lloyd Burland, Tom 
Brasseur, Ronald McCrum, Linda 
Gray, David Bowers, Frank Her- 
man, and Dan Dyvig. 

The play was a spoof on 17th 
century doctors and their patients. 
Sam Statton played the "Invalid" 
with his exceptional flair for acting 
so that the audience howled with 

laughter at the hilarious caricature 
he portrayed. 

Argan, as was his name, was al- 
ways calling on doctors for their 
advice and medications. Once re- 
ceived, Argan was sure of their 
impotence. Prior to the time of 
the play's action he had called on 
every doctor in Paris for one reason 
or another. 

His nurse, Toinette, was played 
by Sali Burch, substituting for Betty 
Brite. She portrayed a delightfully 
amusing Toinette v/ho was wise to 
Argan's tactics and tolerated his 
complaints only with a skeptical 

The whole cast was entertaining. 
May Frances I'Anson and Lloyd 
Burland's voices blended easily in 
their "operettio" duet in the sec- 
ond act which, unknown to Argan, 
was actually a proposal of marriage. 

Stephanie Pitts, as the unsym- 
pathetic wife of Argan, was excel- 
lent also. 

The whole cast is to be commend- 
ed for their fine work. 

Monsieur Argan is comforted 
in his "illness" by his eldest 
daughter, Angelica, her suitor, 
and Toinette, the maid and 
nurse, as Monsieur Beralde 
hides mirthfully behind cur- 

The shy Dr. Thomas Diaforus 
attempts a proposal of mar- 
riage to Angelica while an in- 
terested audience looks on ap- 
provingly — and disapproving- 


FINALE — Monsieur Argan be- 
comes a "doctor" in a mock 
ceremony which climaxes ac- 
tion in the laugh-provoking, 
"The Imaginary Invalid." 

Everything that goes up . . . taking off from the trampoline 
is fun. It's a "bouncy" P.E. activity. 

Trampoline, Bowling New 
P. E. Sports Activities 

Exam time again rolls around 
and the familiar cry of "What are 
you taking for P. E. and at which 
period.''" fills the air. 

This year two new and exciting 
sports have been added to the Phy- 
sical Education curriculum. One is 
bowling, ofiered for a Monday after- 
noon of entertainment and the 
other, a new sport that is growing 
in popuarity all over the United 
States — the trampoline. 

About two weeks before the be- 
ginning of the second quarter one 
could see a large white mat being 
smuggled into the Physical Educa- 
tion Equipment House, and then 
"Boom!" Everyone was signing up 
to take this challenging sport. In- 
stead of the once familiar cry it 
was "Are you taking trampoline .''", 
and for those who said "yes" came 
the reply, "I'll probably break my 
neck." Such terms as the "swivel 
hips", "cradle", "tuck", and "check" 

became part of many Gulf Park 
girls" vocabularies when referring 
to trampoline antics as they com- 
peted with their classmates during 
class hours and after school, each 
one trying to perfect one specific 
stunt, and then taking on another. 

The second quarter found five, 
full bouncing classes; four taught 
by Miss Morgan, and one by Miss 

Miss Morgan, who enjoys par- 
ticipating in this activity as well as 
teaching it says, "I believe this 
carry over sport is one in which 
all my students have enjoyed par- 
ticipating. The advancement shown 
in skill froin the introduction of 
the class to the present time shows 
a willingness to learn and a sincere 

The enthusiasm shown by stu- 
dents in attempting this sport, new 
to Ciulf Park's campus, insures the 
fact that it will soon be a popular 
as well as successful addition to our 
Physical Education Department.

Winners of the "Crepe Paper Pair Class" at the annual Gym- 
khana were Judy Hull, left, and Drucilla Jones, right. 

Starting off the program was the 
"Bareback Chip Class." The bare- 
back rider had to hold an object 
between her horse and her knee, 
at a walk, trot, and a canter. Susan 
Shaver was the winner of this 

The second class was the Corn 
Cob Race in which the riders had 
to trot to opposite ends of the ring 
from the starting line, dismount, 
pick up a corn cob, re-mount, and 
return to the starting line where 
they repeatedly tossed the cobs into 
a barrel. Carolyn Ray Campbell 
took the honors in this activity. 

The "Crepe Paper Pair Class" 
followed next. Dru Jones and Judy 
Hull succeeded in winning this 
honor after ha\'ing ridden the long- 
est in a pair without tearing the 
crepe paper that was tied to the 
saddle of each of their horses. 

Sarah Todd took first place in 
the "Bat Race." In this event the 
challenge was to see which rider 
could trot to the opposite end of 
the ring, place the end of a bat 
on her forehead and turn arcjund 
five times in each direction and 
then lead her horse back to the 
starting line.

Gymkhana . . . 

(Continued from Page 9) 

In the "Donut Race " Sue Thomas 
showed her great ability to stand 
up in her stirrups and eat the 
doughnuts which were strung 
across the ring. 

Class Six consisted of a "Walk, 
Trot, Canter Relay" in which the 
first rider walked her horse to the 
opposite end of the ring, the sec- 
ond trotted, and the third cantered. 
Carolyn Ray Campbell, M u f f e t 
Arp, and Susan Shaver were de- 
clared winners of this relay. 

Jan Schloth took both the honors 
in the last two classes; first in 
the "Clothes-Horse Race" where 
she demonstrated her great ability 
to get dressed in a sack, and second 
in the "Balloon Contest" where 
both arms had a balloon attached 
and the object was to break her op- 
ponents' balloon s before they 
demolished hers. 

All in all, it was a gala event. 

Lee Lindsey claimed the only 
casualty — her horse stepped on her 
foot and refused to change his 
stance. Finally, however, the animal 
was persuaded to move and the 
program proved an entertaining 
event for all.
